Denise Richards Discusses Family Life and New Screen Projects

Denise Richards is back in front of the camera with her new series, “A Girl Is a Gun.”

“Extra” was on set with the mom of three, where the 45-year-old shared how she is teaching her daughters Sam, Lola and Eloise to be strong women.

She said, “I teach my daughters whatever it is they believe in, to believe in it and not be swayed by peer pressure or what others might think of them, and to stand strong in that, and it’s okay if there are differences. That's what’s really great about our world, even though someone might have a different opinion, you still need to respect their opinion, respect who they are.”

In her upcoming show, Denise plays a strong woman. She said of her “A Girl Is a Gun” character, “She's living the all-American dream, and then she becomes the head of a vigilante group of women.” Smiling, she added, “Girl power… she's made the ultimate sacrifice... leaving her family.”

She also revealed, “I think what's fun about this series is a lot of it has such a '70s vibe about it.”

Richards is also slated to hit the big screen starring opposite NFL bad boy Rob Gronkowski. In "American Violence," she'll play a doctor trying to save a condemned killer. She said, “I love watching a movie or TV show where you leave and you’re like, 'wow,' and it starts a conversation.”

“American Violence” is out February 3rd, and “A Girl Is a Gun” begins streaming in May on Blackpills.
